- One of the more intriguing new features…in Photoshop CC 2015…is your ability to apply color adjustments,…things like levels and curves,…directly to Smart Objects,…as opposed to working…with Adjustment Layers.…So, what I've got here is an image…that I captured using a GoPro Hero 4,…and then I processed it,…and converted it to black and white…inside Camera,…and then introduced it…as a Camera Smart Object into Photoshop.…And you can see that I've got a high pass filter…assigned to it as well.…
